Barty to come off WTA rankings

Queensland, March 24 : Following her retirement from tennis, Ashleigh Barty on Thursday said that she will have her name removed from the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) rankings. The Australian, who stepped away from game as the reigning world no.1, sent shockwaves across tennis comm ty as she put down racquet at the age of just 25. “Ashleigh Barty confirms that she’ll have her name removed from the @WTA rankings in the next rankings cycle. There will be a new World No.1 on Monday after Miami,” tweeted WTA Insider. Barty won three major singles titles on three different surfaces – 2019 Roland Garros, 2021 Wimbledon and most recently the Australian Open in 2022 – and spent 121 total weeks atop the WTA Rankings. Current world no.2 Iga Swiatek of Poland is now in pole position to become new world no.1. Barty’s most recent triumph at the 2022 Australian Open will likely be remembered as her most impactful victory as she became the first Australian to win the title at her home Grand Slam event in 44 years, and in convincing fashion without dropping a set. Across all-levels of play, Barty posted a 305-102 record in singles and a 200-64 record in doubles.
